Seasonal and drip fertigation effects on seed production were investigated at Agricultural College and Research Institute, Madurai, during Kharif 2010 and Summer 2011to study the effect of season under surface drip fertigation on the seed yield and quality of pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L.) cv. VBN3 found that drip fertigation scheduled once in six days and foliar application provided at 45, 55 & 65 DAS, the growth and yield attributes were higher in 100 per cent SRDF as WSF with foliar...

A laboratory experiment was conducted at Agricultural College and Research Institute, Madurai, during two seasons to study the effect of drip fertigation on resultant seed quality in main and ratoon crops of pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L.) cv. VBN 3. The treatments consisted of four fertigation levels viz., F1: 50%, F2: 75%, F3: 100% and F4: 100% ofseed recommended dose of fertilizers through drip combined with three foliar spray of FS1: 0.5% ZnSO4, FS2: 100 ppm succinic acid and FS3: 100 ppm...

Agricultural soils in the coastal region have meager soil fertility characteristics because of their sandy textures,salt content, kaolinitic clays, low cation exchange capacity, diminutive soil organic carbon and nutrient contents. Thedecreasing trend in the productivity of sugarcane was noticed during recent years. Recently however, drip irrigationcombined with fertigation has been found to benefit the farmers because of the very high efficiency of fertilizer use forsuch irrigation schemes. It...
